Torres Del Paine National Park Adventure

8 +/- hours

Tour Description

Pick-up for a full-day Torres del Paine National Park Tour with entrance tickets and lunch included. Begin by visiting the Milodon Cave, a natural monument located on Benitez Hill, 25 kilometers from Puerto Natales, where in 1895 remains of extinct animals like the Sabre Toothed Tiger, American Horse and a large mammal known as Milodon were found. Take a 30 minute walk inside the cave to observe the stalactites, places where the remains were found, and a replica of a Milodon. The excursion continues bordering different lakes such as Sofía, Porteño and Toro, producing a biosphere reserve founded in 1959 with a surface of over 242.000 hectares. Here the landscape changes drastically becoming unforgettable due dozens of lakes populated by marine birds. In the background granite picks dominate the area. Turquoise lakes, waterfalls and mountains covered by ice are the predominant landscapes inside the park. The trip continues with a walk on the shores of Grey Lake, where blue icebergs can be seen, and in the background the vast Grey glacier. After lunch, walk for 15 minutes into the park toward the Waterfall (Salto Grande), which brings together two big lakes inside the park; Nordenskjold and Pehoe Lakes. The road takes us to the Nordenskjold Look Out, bordering Sarmiento Lake, then finally arriving in Laguna Amarga. Here we will have a panoramic view of the three “Towers of Paine”, always depending on the weather conditions. Once we leave the park you will be able to enjoy the most diverse landscapes, such as, the deciduous forest and the vast Patagonian steppe dominated by the wind and aridity. On the way we may see the Patagonian guanaco, South American camel and relative of Llama, and the Rhea (Ñandu), relative of the African Ostrich. Before arriving in Puerto Natales we will observe the little village of Cerro Castillo and Figueroa Lake.
